Cyberattacks, revisited

It’s Groundhog Day.  Or becoming a dog-bites-man story.

“Cyberattack’s Fallout Fuels Scramble,” The Wall Street Journal, June 29, 2017 B3. A ransomware attack through Microsoft Windows hits Maersk, Merck, WPP, and Rosneft, among others.  Surgeries disrupted at a Pennsylvania hospital.  “Hospital Operator In Pennsylvania Works to Recover,” The Wall Street Journal, June 29, 2017 B3.

Does this become so routine we forget people are supposed to take steps to prevent it?  Do cyberattacks make the board agenda, without the tie to the greater information governance questions?  Is that progress?  Does industry not see the bigger risk?
